I recently discovered an artist called Peter Mohrbacher and saw that one of his newer pieces (of some original project 'Angelarium') uses the human transmutation circle from the anime Fullmetal Alchemist (design created for the anime, and pretty recognizable for fans). Seeing this though, I realized I have no idea how to approach him about it, or if I SHOULD approach him about this. Anyway, I'm genuinely curious whether this is considered legitimately inappropriate or just plain lazy, and where the boundaries are.

Would a zodiac killer letter make a great tattoo for my wrist?
Whenever i draw, i have this desire to make something good.
Its gotten to the point to where i want to make something good, and i have forgotten why i even started drawing.
What do you guys do to get past this?
If you're saying what I think you're saying, aspiring to make something good is fine. If you're enjoying the process and you're satisfied when you make something good, it doesn't matter if you've lost sight of why you started. If you're not enjoying the process, nobody but you can tell you why you got into drawing. Reflect on why you're doing it and get an answer yourself.
I understand that to git gud we should embrace failure, and prolifically so, but I can't help but feel bad when my art is bad. I've heard that linking your self worth to your work is bad for you and your productivity, but how can I remove said link?
I can work hard and fill my sketchbook for a few days but then I start to feel like my drawings are terrible and thus I'm terrible. They're worthless beginner trash and so I'm worthless beginner trash, etc. I'm not looking for a feels thread, I'm just interested if someone knows how to get...

I struggled with the same thoughts for almost all my time drawing, worsening for each stroke I put down. Every session the self-criticism got harsher, and in the end I slowly but surely put down the pencil. Today I don't draw anymore. It has been around four to five months since I last drew. It was truly debilitating and I know exactly what you mean. I have tried asking the same question as you have earlier, but I don't believe there's a simple fix.
when I finish a drawing it looks good.
when I look again it looks shit.
The third time it looks fine, just not perfect.
Remember your more likely to see the flaws in your own work, and that there are people out there who claim stuff below you is perfection (I mean have you been on deviantart)
Im a beginner and looking for advices on posture and anatomy for my work to look as natural and fresh as posible. Pic is my work.
I've noticed a new trend on /ic/, people are making threads about never 'making it'. These threads push the idea that its really difficult to make money from art, and this is true. A common counter argument to this is to suggest drawing porn. Is there any evidence that backs up this claim that it is easier to make money with porn commissions? Does anyone have any case studies? I find it hard to believe that anyone makes a decent living from it.
>all these verbatim "muh ego" and "I want to do porn but idk lol" threads
[ - ]
people suggest porn since there's a big market for it and it's easy to get in to. The pay ceiling is pretty low so its not great as a way to make a full living, but good for getting a bit of return for your work and getting a bit of experience with doing commissions for people
Wow, truly one of the greatest masters of the 20th century.
Did you say geometric abstraction?
I think you said geometric abstraction
Let's all draw Mohammed. This is one I did a couple of weeks ago, on the anniversary of the CH attacks.
>make a "tutorial" video on youtube
>its a bait and switch video thats just a sped up speedpaint with some obnoxious music playing in the bg so despite getting lots of views it has a lot of dislikes
>doesn't matter in the end
>all those butthurt idiots complaining about how its not a real tutorial vid
Shut up and get gud you losers.
Every artist on youtube does it. Especially mexicans. Because they know its a easy to get lots of bait and switch views from people hoping to improve. Its genius albeit pretty manipulative.
So what's the level I should aspire IF I want to live off my art? I don't mean to be ultra-super-mega-good but something along the lines of "meh, you pass now go make minimum wage"?
I just want to make like 1000$ monthly with my art, as an illustrator or a concept artist, working from home.
Is this possible? at what lvl is this possible? more or less. can ic point this out?
I'm a beginner not a total-utter-out-of-hope beginner but a beginner I am
so? what do you think? any advice?
Anywhere in the US 1k would get depleted quickly.
To OP: work on getting a studio gig. Art is a skill that is meant to be paid top dollar. Or you can prostitute yourself on fiverr and work more than a real job for peanuts. If that's what you want then go for it.
on a scale from 1-10, how good is this painting?
